Savills Earth recruits social value lead
Wesley Ankrah has joined Savills Earth as social value director.
Ankrah joins the broker’s specialist energy and sustainability division from Dominvs Group, a UK real estate developer, where he led a social value team which delivered social and community value projects and strategies for projects in the City of London, Nine Elms, Stratford and Enfield.
Prior to Dominvs, he founded SeerBridge, a social value and community benefit consultancy which worked with clients such as housebuilders Berkeley, Bellway and Galliard, and The Earls Court Development Company.
David Jackson, head of Savills Earth, said: “Wesley has industry recognition for his work in social value and we are delighted to welcome him to Savills Earth. His appointment will bolster our ability to ensure social value is embedded in projects from the earliest stage and thereby optimise the benefits derived from the S of ESG.”
